Flexible sprung frame

Anyone remember a BMX bike from the seventies that had a spring integrated into the fram, and the whole frame flexed? A buddy had one back in 78-9 time frame, but I have no idea who made the thing (or really, how to describe it).

No, that wasn't it.

Seems like the spring went from the seat base to where the downtube met the headtube, but I could be wrong.

The spring looked like a chromed coilover.
